Legal Developments by:
Fieldfisher JAUSAS

  • Life Sciences Overview 2008/09

    Law 29/2006 (26 July 2006) on guarantees and rational use of medicinal products and medical devices is the central regulation governing medicinal products. The law still requires development through a large number of Royal Decrees, during 2008 and 2009. Many provisions of Law 29/2006 (such as the sale by post or by telematic means of certain medicinal products) do not appear to be enforceable until such legislation is enacted. This particularly applies to rules on medical devices, which are included in Law 29/2006, but need legislation to be effectively enforced. Such specific legislation is currently being developed, including for medical prescriptions and traceability.
